Smile Speedo intermittant tonight.... 99 Espace 2.0 16v - Help locate fault.

On the way home tonight the speedo went to zero, then occasionally 80 + mph (whilst doing 40), then back to blank. This is the second time this has done it. The forst time I just turned off the ignition and restarted and it was OK. This time that didnt work and it was doing it again still with the engine cold this evening.

I've had a look through past threads advising the sensor may be on the wheel or the gearbox. I've had it up on the ramps - on the wheel hubs - on the near side there appears to be a sensor (a thin wire in colour) just tied round a part of the hub and further up the srtut it is cut. So it cant be that - as otherwise it would be intermittant.

Also on the hub is what appears to be a toothed cog with a senso on both front wheels. I've cleaned them with brake dust cleaner.

On the gearbox, tucked away to the left of the brake servo on top of the gearbox is a wite with a large connection - which I can only think is the sensor, i've twisted and turned it and WD40'd it - and it seems to be working again but I'm not convinced I;ve got the right bit. Any advice out there???

A picture would be good of what I'm looking for.
